NCAA Week #4 – Bruins Don’t Budge

The UCLA Bruins are commanding the NCAA Division I power rankings for the third straight week as the Bull League’s only exclusively American affiliated college league enters its all-star break.

The Bruins still retain their commanding gap over the Indiana Hoosiers, the USC Trojans, and the Ohio State Buckeyes, who lag far behind the 20-6 Bruins.

The team has enjoyed not only strong pitching, but incredible hitting, from the likes of Carl Simms Jr. and Brian Sarvis.

After starting the week off with a loss against Arizona State to split their series, the Bruins were blanked 18-0 in Kentucky, leaving some to wonder if the wild, high flying Bruins had finally been tamed. But they fought back against the Wildcats with am 8-2 win to split that series, before sweeping the Washington State Cougars to end the week.

Simms Jr will be joined by closer Jessie Mathies in the NCAA All-Star Game which takes place later today.
